Love this place! The owner is very friendly and usually always there! The food is awesome. I love the Carne Asada burrito. Food comes out quickly!

Wow, the carne asada burrito was the best I have had. I am kinda jealous since I feel I do a pretty good carne asada. Just not as good. Good service too. The salsa was not one of my favorites but hey, everything else was spot on. I will be back. They do have beer available but it was a... More

If you are in Las Cruces, I would highly recommend this place. Everything was clearly very fresh and the service was quick. We got enchiladas and the chicken fajitas; both were great. I wish you could get chips and salsa AND the welcome soup!

I'm limiting this review to the Macho Chimichanga. Take a look at the photos. When you go there, don't be just hungry, or really hungry, or REALLY HUNGRY--better be RAVENOUS!!!! I'm telling you, the photos don't do that beast of a meal justice. IT'S HUGE!!! Most burritos or chimis aren't a match for me--I gobble 'em up, no sweat. But... More

My wife and I had lunch there today. This was our first time eating there and it was a great experience. My wife had chicken tacos and I had the chicken mole plate. My wife enjoyed the tacos and the chicken mole was excellent. We will definitely go back.

This is my second visit to Habanero's and equally as good as the first time. It is now one of my favorite Mexican food restaurants in Las Cruces. It is clean, the staff is friendly, the food is fresh, and everything is delicious. I ordered the Chile Rellenos and my husband had the shrimp tacos. The welcome soup was a... More

We occasionally stop for lunch. They have recently finished some exterior and interior painting. A nice fresh feel.. I believe their pledge to "fresh" food is fading. Some liberties being taken away from traditional Mexican. I found their prices somewhat higher than their (full service) competitors. For the money I prefer to come elsewhere.

Read recent reviews and gave this little restaurant in an old adobe building a try. WOW! It was great. We live in a bigger city with many good Mexican food places but we both agreed, "It was wonderful." After reading a review about the mole, I tried the mole on the spinach-artichoke enchiladas: delicious. Hubby had the chicken mole dinner... More

Habanero's is a great little restaurant if you are looking for a casual, quiet place to have nice meal and a beer. The menu items are listed on the wall and you order at a counter. The food is brought to your table. While many restaurants in Las Cruces serve excellent food in the style of the Southwest, Habanero's is... More

We travel down to Cruces every year with the three Whippets and always eat at Habanero's at least once. This year was no exception and we again had a fantastic meal. The Welcome soup this year may be the best yet! I had the chicken Mole again because I really live how chef prepared this favorite of mine. Again, super... More
